Dear Mathematics,

I've been reading all about you and have begun to wonder.
If I am just a number

am I whole or natural?
Irrational or rational?
Positive or negative?
Prime or real?

Do you even know that these questions
own a double meaning?

I worry;
once you solve this puzzle
I can be predicted.
Controlled and instructed to do something
more constructive than both you.

These sterile steps
of recognizing, classifying, and exploiting
makes you a difficult friend to trust.

You are everywhere and nowhere...
sort of like the image
some might think of as God.

Do you get that often?

Infinitesimally Yours,
